2003 E350 wheels on 1997 F250, sharing...

Looking at buying 1997 F250 HD with 8 lug wheels, I have several better sets of 2003 E350 wheels will they fit the truck? I thought I saw this discussed before but couldn't find it with a search... the truck will be used in town and no freeways so I wouldn't mind older tires (which I have mounted & balanced but don't trust on the van on long trips anymore...)

thanks

Same bolt pattern.
The bolt pattern didn't change on the trucks until the new body style Super Duty for the 1999 model year changed to 8 X 170mm.
E vans through 2014 never changed the bolt pattern to metric and used the same one as the old body style trucks (OBS) which is 8 X 6.5" or 165.1mm
So the wheels will fit but the tires may be different sizes.

I will do a search for running 245/75R16 on the '97 F250, sounds very familiar...

thanks!

BTW guys here's a nifty device for confirming the actual bolt pattern of wheels and hubs:
Bolt Circle Gage Bolt Circle Gage

Works great, doesn't take up a lot of space in the glove box or tool box either.

That looks like a handy gadget JWA.
Sam has it with the wheel info.
